Dining on a cruise ship is the best! Today’s adventure… the MSC Divina out of the Port of Miami! Italian-style cruising, somewhat similar to what Costa Cruises offers.
I experienced a four-course (really, five-course) lunch in The Black Crab dining room. I’d ordinarily tell you about my tour, but since I’m exhausted from spending nearly a day onboard and in the sun — the sun really saps my energy — I’ll just cut to the chase and show you some pictures from my culinary adventures.
First up, the appetizer… Smoked Salmon Roll with chive cheese mousse filling. The “chive cheese” was only a little piece of chive garnish atop the plate. Also, what’s the difference between “cheese mousse” and cream cheese?! The dollops of sauce in the foreground were tasty though… kind of like Big Mac sauce. Not sure what the green veggies in the back were, as they weren’t mentioned on the menu… I’d rate this plate an okay-fine.
Next up, the soup… Ca’ppuccino, cream of Porcini mushroom soup topped with frothed milk, served with a mini cumin croissant.
